Five-day-old chicks Penny, Peep and Polly roost in Brasher Center. Photographer Valerie Sharlow said they are kept in a brooder until they are big enough to withstand cool nights in an outdoor coop. She said that normally takes about two weeks. "We are growing them as pets and will also enjoy eggs in the fall when they are old enough to lay," Sharlow wrote.View enlarged photo.
